Summary

Emergency Care, 10/Ehas prepared more students to pass state and/or the National Registry Exam than any other text on the market with well-organized, clearly presented content, thorough coverage of patient assessment, an accessible reading level, high quality artwork, and outstanding skill scans of equipment and procedures. Case studies and practical tips from the field tie chapter concepts to real world applications. Each chapter sends students to the Companion Website where there are links to EMS-related sites. A new in-text CD provides extra information to help students master concepts. Emergency Care AHA Update reflects the American Heart Association's 2005 CPR and ECC guidelines.
